Publisher's Summary

It began with the youngest president in history taking office and ended with Richard Nixon. The first troops went to Vietnam. Bob Dylan sang "Blowin' in the Wind". Star Trek debuted on TV. On November 22, 1963, the assassination of JFK shocked the nation, and was later followed by the assassinations of Dr. Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy. Motown gave us the Supremes and Stevie Wonder, and Beatlemania hit the U.S. Hair was on Broadway and The Graduate was on the screen. The Ford Mustang arrived, along with troll dolls and skateboards. We thrilled to Roger Maris and Joe Namath.

Here are the actual voices and events of a tumultous decade.

    "Psychedelic Haze...Bad Trip"

    The 60's was the generation with it all. I wanted to really enjoy a nostalgic trip through the decade. Alas It was a bad trip.

    It was like a psychedelic drug induced haze where you have a moment of clarity. Or like Laugh In dances before everything stops for the joke. It was a laundry list of events with a few comments.

    The things you would have thought would get top billing were brushed to the side. The decade was chocked full of events so there was no shortage of material. But it lacked integrity and clarity.

    Maybe it is a trip best taken with mind altering drugs. Hey rose colored glasses wouldn't help this book.

    Save your money. Don't buy this book or any of the other decade books by the same author. It is a bad trip better off avoided. Peace!
